Øresund Space Collective biography
It all started with some loose jam sessions in the rehearsal rooms of the bands Bland Bladen and Mantric Muse. Founded by Scott Heller aka Dr. Space (synth, management) in 2004 ØRESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE (OSC) are a multinational crew which get together as often as possible to play free form improvised space rock music. The band name derives from the Øresund Bridge, connecting Denmark and Sweden since the year 2000. The purpose is to offer another flavour with every new session. This is guaranteed by everlasting line-up changes.

The whole OSC family comprises more than 30 members in the meanwhile, temporarily entrusted by nearly every existing Nordic psych/space band. They have toured all over in Europe whilst collaborating with Sula Bassana and others. The musical trademark is provided by a grooving backbone in general. This is decorated by playful multiple guitars and a proper proportion of synthesizer and organ input. The interplay is somnambulistic due to a special spirit. All in all their music blends elements of psychedelic, space, dub, jazz and krautrock. Nearly every studio session or live gig has been recorded - the best-of excerpts got a place on several studio albums, starting with the eponymous debut in 2006.

Additionally the band offer several recordings for free via their official website respectively other legal download platforms, for example Internet Archives. The Black Tornado Studios in Copenhagen must be beneficial for the band's spirit - with the result of several highlights. Released on Transubstans 'It's All About Delay' (2006) and 'Black Tomato' (2007) are critically acclaimed albums coming from jam sessions in early 2006. Two years later a different line-up recorded new high quality material at the same place. 'Slip Into The Vortex' and 'Dead Man In Space' have been already released in 2010, a third album is announced.

Visions Of...
Øresund Space Collective Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Aussie-Byrd-Brother
Special Collaborator Rock Progressivo Italiano Team

4 stars Scott Heller/Dr Space and his musical collaborators of the Øresund Space Collective return with another psychedelic ripper, 2016's `Visions Of...'. Originating from the same sessions that dark drone `Ode to a Black Hole' and the eclectic `Different Creatures' (one of the best 'SC releases to date) hailed from, it's another set of slowly unfolding spacey jams that also eventually reveals a strong funk influence this time around once it gets going, making for a unique and fresh release from the players.

The near-forty two minute title-track barely slows down for even a second, remaining high-energy and unrelenting almost the entire time! It holds plenty of fuzzy distortion, thick murmuring bass ruminations, sparkling electric piano and fizzing synth trills, with much attention placed on the slow burn but dominating electric guitar and fiery drumming, although sprightly violin and pedal-steel guitar also weave dreamily throughout the second half. `Visions Of...' lightly echoes the classic late Sixties/early Seventies live Pink Floyd performances in several spots, and along with some brief scratchy reggae-flecked moments, it makes for a great example of the sort of music the ØSC musicians frequently deliver so well.

The liner notes of the album mention Miles Davis' `On the Corner' as an inspiration, and sure enough `Above the Corner' is a Seventies flavoured infectious groover of sly funky guitars, slithering liquid bass and shimmering organ! Ambient rising/falling synths wash over droning eastern-flavoured guitar effects and hypnotic African drums slowly build in stature and danger in `Piece of Seven', and `Around the Corner' returns to gurgling funky bass and electric piano trickles over lovely floating synth wisps, with the piece really cooking as it picks up in tempo and races towards the finish with an endless blazing guitar solo, chunky grumbling bass and fierce drumming.

On this, their twenty-third release to date, the Øresund Space Collective continue their superb run of recent works, and this one has everything you could want from the band - sh*t-hot playing, cool grooves and plenty of deep-space environments, and it also reveals those surprising little flavours that make each ØSC release stand apart from the last. The `band' won't be performing as much in 2017, so it makes these releases even more vital and special, a must for lovers of jammy space-music and improvised psych-rock.

Four stars.

(and don't forget to look into `Dr Space's Alien Planet Trip - vol 1' LP, a feverish distortion heavy electronic mind-melt that sounds like the soundtrack to Edgar Froese's most vivid nightmares!)

Ode to a Black Hole
Øresund Space Collective Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Einwahn

5 stars This is the third studio album of 2016 from this interesting band, whose prolific output may be attributable to their multivariate personnel. Their output is always psychedelic but diverse, and in 'Ode to a Black Hole' they have produced something really special. It is a classic extended 'drone' performance, nominally split into two parts. The moody slow-burning background rolls along with great discipline, but the overlays gradually (and this is what I love) build and build to create this awe-inspiring atmosphere - really as if one is inexorably being drawn into one of the legendary astronomical objects of the title. Just fantastic.

My only quibble is the artwork, which shows a spaceship seemingly emerging from a black hole - I think the music takes us in the opposite direction.

Verdict: Recommended to fans of early Tangerine Dream or late Electric Orange - or even Tony Conrad.

Review by Aussie-Byrd-Brother
Special Collaborator Rock Progressivo Italiano Team

5 stars Back in 2012, a version of the revolving door line-up of musicians that can make up the Øresund Space Collective issued a vinyl only release that was to prove quite a diversion from the usual trippy jamming space-rock excursions associated with the group. Keyboardist Scott Heller aka Dr Space paired up with `Love' Forsberg and KG Westman of Siena Root to offer `West Space and Love', an intoxicating raga-rock work of groaning sitar strains, tabla and other ethnic instruments in the manner of Agitation Free and the Ash Ra Tempel, but, along with a few other musical guests, they take things even further with this follow- up, blending ambient, electronic, space and prog rock with those eastern vibes.

Sublime eleven-minute opener `Floyd's Dream' is a hypnotic chill-out of looping electronic ripples and gentle ebbing synth washes caressing mellow chiming guitars, all reminding of the precious Pink Floyd period that stretched from `Ummagumma' to `Atom Heart Mother' in the late Sixties/early Seventies. `Khan Paan' perfectly binds eastern and western sounds as ringing sitar strains twist with swampy bluesy guitars and dusty stirring violin, `2002' is a whirring theme of humming and bleeding electronics, and `Pig in Space' an amusing and twitching distorted vocal scat interlude over wild drum soloing!

Side B's `Oscillations in D Minor' drifts as an unhurried and meditative sitar rumination over rising and falling synth breezes before staggering into heavy brooding electric guitar strains, searing violin reaches, commanding drum rumbles and thick swirling electronics. `Anybody Out There?' is carefully melancholic with restrained desolate drones behind a pleading voice calling from the ether, thankfully lifted with hopeful synth trilling in the finale, and closer `Time Compression' is a contemplative sitar reflection that lurches to life with an ocean of warm and uplifting Hammond organ.

Despite initially being fully improvised, `West Space and Love 2' benefits greatly from little bits of extra production over the course of three days (although with minimal extra takes), which gives the material the most subtle of polish but never at the expense of the spontaneity and liveliness of the original recordings. It helps to make `West Space and Love 2' an immersive and deeply atmospheric work of cosmic and earthy beauty, and absolutely one of the instrumental releases of the year.

Four and a half stars.

4 stars The Øresund Space Collective have been putting out a steady stream of superb jamming and fully improvised space-rock discs for over ten years now, occasionally reaching true greatness with some particular standout releases (2015's `Different Creatures' and the chilled triple live set `Out in Space' instantly come to mind). But in addition to their frequently guitar dominated and synth driven albums, it's the fascinating sonic diversions and more experimental works from the revolving door group of musicians that frequently make up the project that leave a lasting impression, and `Ode to the Black Hole' is yet another unexpected but very welcome change of direction. Described by the group as a `long doom drone track', `Ode...' sounds like no other ØSC release to date, a deeply atmospheric and heavy monolithic storm of a soundtrack that is sure to equally intrigue and challenge their loyal fanbase.

One continuous fifty-two minute instrumental sound collage (indexed into two tracks on the CD and spread over two sides of vinyl for the LP release) laced with an ever-present danger and howling desolation, the lengthy and obvious electric guitar soloing that frequently features heavily on their numerous other albums is mostly absent, instead replaced by dirty, brooding feedback drenched drawn-out stoner rock guitar distortion. The slightest of rising and falling synth washes drift in and out as if sighing winds, bleeding electronics seep in amongst darkly ambient thrumming reverberations, and the most fleeting of dusty Eastern flavours permeate slow-burn mantra-like grumbling guitar ruminations. A murky pattering of plodding drums slowly beat down on sanity, eerie Theremin wisps spiral with fragility and ethereal electric violin strains weep mournfully, all twisting as one in an increasingly howling vacuum. Mud-thick murmuring bass slithers amongst the shadows and jagged guitars become frequently snarling as everything together culminates with hair-pulling intensity.

Some less patient listeners will find it all a bit too vague and repetitive, and newcomers to the band should perhaps try elsewhere in their ever-growing back-catalogue first, but those who appreciate darker types of space-rock music, slower- paced stoner rock and even droning ambient styles will find this hugely immersive and deeply rewarding. Calling to mind in the briefest moments everything from early Pink Floyd, traces of the Krautrock-era Tangerine Dream albums, Agitation Free, Ash Ra Tempel and even early Nineties/`Moonloop'-era Porcupine Tree here and there, `Ode to a Black Hole' is a stark, stoned and heavy meditation that is one of the most subtle, hypnotic and distinctive releases from the Øresund Space Collective to date.

Four stars.

(Special thanks to Prog Archives member Samuel C (Meltdowner) who picked me up a CD copy at one of the ØSC concerts and even got keyboard player Scott Heller (Dr Space) to sign it for me before sending it all the way over here to Australia! Deeply appreciated, gentlemen!)

4 stars Named after the bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden this is ORESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE's debut album released in 2006. They are an 8 piece band at this point with four of them playing synths although one of the four also plays Fender Rhodes and another also plays guitar. We have two bass players, a drummer and a guitarist rounding out the lineup. I had heard some samples from this last year causing me to believe this was the best I had heard from the band but I must say after spending considerable time with it that I feel "The Black Tomato" is still my favourite of the ones I've heard.

"Faked It All The Way" opens with so many intricate sounds here that blip, pulse and ping, well you get the picture. It does settle back before 5 minutes and it becomes more spacey right to the end. "Consumed By The Goblin" features spacey synths along with cymbals and some guitar. It starts to build before 1 1/2 minutes as the drums join in. I like the Fender Rhodes after 4 minutes. We're just tripping at this point. The organ is welcomed after 6 1/2 minutes along with the guitar. The guitar starts to soar around 8 1/2 minutes then the organ returns 10 minutes in as the guitar stops. It calms down around 13 minutes and this continues to the end as we get spacey winds and more. "OSC Bolero" is by far my favourite. I'm so reminded of LE ORME of all bands right here. Those melancholic synths and that beat are amazing. This is darker overall as well. Great track!

"Falling Stardrops" is spacey with bass and cymbals then a beat eventually joins in. This is so relaxed and trippy. Spoken words arrive after 5 1/2 minutes and continue until almost 7 minutes in. Guitar to the fore then the electric piano joins in before 9 minutes. "Grab A Cab" has an almost Reggae beat to it with twittering electronics and guitar helping out. That Reggae vibe ends later on though. "Moonhead" is a short spacey tune with plenty of atmosphere. I really like this and wish it were longer. "Sundown" is the over 17 1/2 minute closer. I'm not the biggest fan of this as it is often fairly subdued. Picked guitar and spacey winds join the sparse intro. It's getting louder 4 minutes in and Fender Rhodes joins in around 5 1/2 minutes. It then turns quiet for some time with synths. It's the bass/ drum/ synth show for quite a while as the guitar comes and goes.

It's certainly worth the 4 stars but I seem to get a lot more out of ELECTRIC ORANGE these days. A great start to their careers though.

Different Creatures
Øresund Space Collective Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Aussie-Byrd-Brother
Special Collaborator Rock Progressivo Italiano Team

5 stars Scott Heller (aka Dr Space) and his fellow musical friends that form the Øresund Space Collective have delivered two official works in 2015, both of them a mix of double/triple vinyl and multi-CD sets of fully improvisational space-rock. While the superb previous one `Out into Space' was sourced directly from three-set concert performances, `Different Creatures' was worked on in a studio and recorded live over a three day period, and it might have turned out to be the strongest ØSC release to date. Incorporating violin, sitar (in a very different manner to their ambient/raga work `West Space and Love' from 2012) and perhaps giving a heavier prominence to electronics and experimental psychedelia than before, this one has their most diverse range of sounds and a larger variety of moods, as well as even more dense and complex material that never loses the spontaneous sound that the band is known for.

Thoughtful violin whispers may glide through the twenty minute opener of the first disc `The Ride to Valhalla', but it quickly reveals a crash of unceasing and frantic up-tempo drumming and heavy guitar blasts. `Juggle the Juice' is a welcome twisted psychedelic mind-spasm interlude, and calming synth breezes float around drifting ethereal sitar strains, drowsy bass, careful pattering drums and slow-burn electric guitar in the 30 minute `Digestive Raga', another one of their most mellow and laid-back sublime moments that purrs along on toasty vibes. `The Man from Wales' is a sexy wasted guitar and gorgeous organ plod, and `Bon Voyage' is a swirling vortex of experimental electronic twitches and mud-thick distorted bass with maddening building drums.

The two extended pieces that take up the 65 minute second disc reach even impossibly greater heights. The twenty-minute `Raga for Jerry G' is one of the dreamiest, most placid, even sweetest and carefully reflective pieces ever committed to disc by any variation of the ØSC, a soothing haze of weeping sitar strings, careful violin strains, gently blowing synth winds, electric piano ​glistenings and even drowsy country-flavoured slide guitar ruminations. The ambitious 45 minute album closer `20 Steps Towards the Invisible Door' heads closer to deep space madness again, Tangerine Dream-like sequencers and loops taking on a creeping and darker machine menace, harsher electric guitar drones and a breathless rumble of rising drumming. Scratchy violin slivers dance around bubbling synths and teases of eastern flavours before exploding into unhinged electric guitar wailing like a storm, with a final effective come-down the perfect way to ease back to Earth.

The ØSC have always delivered strong albums, but that true greatness they'd always had within their reach has finally been fully realised here. If you're already familiar with the group and the sort of eclectic space music its mostly revolving door of musicians and guests can deliver, then you already know the talent on display and the colourful works they deliver with every release. But if you're looking for an introduction to the band presenting some of their best ever material, then this would also make for an ideal title to explore from them first.

`Different Creatures' is a defining release for the Øresund Space Collective, one of the most varied, special and exciting space-rock/psych releases of the year, and simply one of the best overall progressive-related releases of 2015.

Five stars.

3 stars `Organic Earthly Flotation' is one of the latest in a steady cosmic stream of releases from the psychedelic Øresund Space Collective, and it's yet another reliable blast of mostly improvised and jamming space rock. As with the varying line-up featured on previous discs, founding members Dr Space and Mogens are joined this time by musicians from other bands like Denmark's Papir and Sweden's Carpet Knights, with a special highlight given to American guest Daniel Lar's powerful guitar skills. Because of this, the two sides of vinyl here deliver some of the most guitar heavy music to appear on an ØSC disc so far, giving it a very distinctive identity all its own in their eclectic discography.

The first side of the LP houses two parts of a longer jam entitled `Walking on Clouds'. It's a showcase for Lars' endless guitar soloing, with his distinctive and varied tone often channelling the sound of David Gilmour from the late 60's/early 70's Pink Floyd live shows that can still be enjoyed on dozens of bootlegs (shhh, our secret!). These two parts plod along for twenty six minutes with only slight variations, with some fleeting tempo pick-ups here and there and back again with brief wilder, more muscular outbursts spontaneously catching fire. Rising and falling synth swells wash around slow-burn reverb-heavy electric guitar ruminations that gradually grow in power, a dusty and earthy quality permeating the atmosphere. There's also some Ozric Tentacles-styled bubbling synth ripples too, and the second part is even more mellow and dreamier, with plenty of placid drowsy guitar strums over swirling synth winds.

Side B's `Carlos on the Moon' is unusually emotional for the band, gently melancholic and quietly reflective guitar strains carrying the opening minutes on lifting fizzy washes of synths. Second guitarist Nicklas Sorensen solos next to Lars throughout this one, and as the piece progresses, their two instruments duel alongside each-other, weaving together to make sweet green smouldering alien love! Par Hallgren's bass murmurs thoughtfully throughout then simmers nicely as the piece builds in intensity, Kristoffer Brochmann's unceasing hypnotic drumming casts a lethargic spell and dirty grooves even threaten to take hold in the burning climax before cooling synth waves bring us back to Earth sedately. The shorter album closer `Neptune Rising' throttles with a thrashing energy, some manic, repetitive and aggressive guitar runs sounding like Hawkwind jamming with Steve Hillage. It's cool, but is clearly whittled down from a much longer jam, so is just a tiny bit of a missed opportunity.

Special mention must go to the lavish LP set, and fans will know that the vinyl editions should really be the preferred choice to purchase for this group. Once again the band have delivered the goods with a beautiful thick gatefold sleeve with mind-bending painted artwork throughout by Eetu Pellonpää. The LP also comes with a digital download copy, so space cadets can take a cosmic trip wherever they go!

The other ØSC albums released in 2013 - the compilations `Hamburg Concerts' and `Live at the Kildemose Festival 2008-10' - not to mention the steady stream of live recordings of full live concerts uploaded onto the Net to download for free from Dr Space himself probably offer more variety than this release, but for those who especially enjoy this type of music with a particular focus on guitars, `Organic Earthly Flotation' is still a tasty slice of improvised space-rock from one of the leading modern bands in the field.

Three stars - but guitar freaks can add a whole extra star!

5 stars Thus far the best album from the Oresund Space Collective, we have here a killer, guitar driven piece of space made up of several ten to twenty minute long tracks and jams, all dedicated to the almighty beard. The old use of electronic effects, and so their more ethereal side, is gone. The focus comes to guitars, with plenty of room for magic from keys and drums as well. All perform in this way. The band also indulges in playing voice samples live, leading to some neat effects from a heretofore fully instrumental band. "Beardlandia" sums up this smashing record quite nicely. "Ziggurat of The Beards" and "Remnants of The Barbonaeum" are fellow tracks that are a cut above the others, but all of it is excellent. The collective have really upped their game by now, which is phenomenal. They have to be one of the best ever jam bands, and I am just loving this band. Highly, highly recommended. This is some of the best space in years, and is spectacularly and whimsically played.

5 stars An hour long jam by the wonderful OSC. Guitar figures much more than in most of their releases, for the better, widening their sound. This is as calm and ethereal as their usual work, but with all the wonders extra guitar brings. The jam builds up very well, and it feels just right when the solos come in. Every instrument, as expected from the Space Collective, is played perfectly, and for a final mention, the guitars are best, nailed and carrying the day. Just great. The keys are also wonderful when they go solo. And the fact that this is a continuous improvisation, rather than just an hour long song like, say, Sleep's magnum opus "Dopesmoker", is all the more impressive. As far as space rock goes, this has to be a pinnacle. A spectacular, highly recommended listen for all space fans.

5 stars Smashing, fully improvised space rock from a talented group of Danish and Swedish hippie revivalists, one of several masterpieces under their belt. All sorts of rock and electronic instruments and effects went into making this chilled, beautiful soup of an album, ever varied. This is the stuff of mental journeys into the beyond. "Faked It All The Way", "Consumed By The Goblin", and "Sundown" are the highlights, the last two of these being over ten minutes a pop. Electronics, drums, and bass particularly carry the day, but everything is excellent and used flawlessly. The album pretty much is ethereal electronic effects supported by rock instruments and prog keys, all brilliantly laid down to facilitate relaxation and trips. Just mental and beautiful. Highly recommended.
